By using any Service(s), you agree on your own behalf and on behalf of any entity on whose behalf you may act to these terms. Please read them carefully. Alt-N has the right, in its sole discretion to add to, remove, modify or otherwise change any part of this agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. If you do not agree to the modified terms, you should discontinue your use of the Service(s). Your continued use of the Service(s) constitutes your agreement to and acceptance of the terms and conditions.

Alt-N reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account if it determines, in its sole discretion, that you are violating any of these terms and conditions. Alt-N reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time.

Alt-N does not monitor, censor or edit the contents of individual email messages and attachments. You alone are responsible for the contents of your messages and attachments, and the consequences of any such messages and attachments. You agree that you will not use this Service(s) for chain letters, junk mail, "spamming", solicitations (commercial or non-commercial) or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process. Sending an email message, especially an advertisement, to more than 25 recipients, is considered spamming unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic. If you wish to send out mass emails to large numbers of recipients, please use a service built to do so.

You may not use the Service(s) to send any messages or material that are unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene, pornographic or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature or that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation, or contain viruses, trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or any harmful or deleterious programming routine. The designation of any materials as such described above is left entirely to the discretion of Alt-N.

Alt-N does not promise that the Service(s) will be 100% uninterrupted, error-free, or completely secure. You acknowledge that there are risks inherent in internet connectivity that could result in the loss of your privacy, customer data, and confidential information. Alt-N is not responsible for interruption of Service(s) as a result of failures outside of Alt-N's reasonable control, your connection to the Internet, your computer, your mobile device or your systems. Alt-N will make reasonable efforts to provide seven (7) days advance notice of interruptions of Service(s) for maintenance by email and on the product web page for the Service(s). Alt-N may also perform unscheduled emergency maintenance if needed to address new security threats or other non-routine events.

OWNERSHIP AND SERVICES PURCHASED

The individual or entity set out in our records as the administrator(s) shall be the Owner of the account. Owners are responsible for all content stored or transmitted under their account and the actions of the other users of their account. The Owner shall be responsible for administering the Service(s), including adding mailboxes, adding wireless or other service components, adding storage capacity, managing settings, and configuring spam filters.

The features and details of the Service(s) governed by this Agreement are described on the product web pages setting out the particular services you have purchased. Alt-N may modify the Service(s) it offers from time-to-time.

Certain aspects of the Service(s) are provided by third parties. These third parties may have reserved the right to make changes, including material changes, to the services provided by them. You may terminate this Agreement if such a change materially affects the Service(s).

You may not resell the Service(s) without Alt-N's prior written consent.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your user name, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify Alt-N of any unauthorized use of your user name.

TERM AND TERMINATION

The term of your Service(s) begins upon your receipt of your provision email from Alt-N ("Service Date"). You may cancel at any time with thirty (30) days prior notice to Alt-N. Otherwise, the Service(s) shall continue to be provided on a month-to-month basis.

All account cancellations must be sent to Alt-N in writing via your admin email address or faxed with a valid signature of the Owner of the account, account name, the date on which you wish to have Service(s) cancelled, and reason for cancellation. Due to security concerns, your cancellation request is verified and confirmed by Alt-N via email to the admin email address. Alt-N is not responsible for any cancellation request that it does not receive. If you do not receive a confirmation/acknowledgment email for your cancellation request, this indicates Alt-N did not receive it.

Once cancellation notice has been received, the Service(s) will be cancelled on the date specified by you or on the last day of the final billing period for your account if an exact date was not specified. Cancellations on dates prior to the last day of the final billing period are not eligible for partial refunds.

At your written request made at or within twenty (20) days of the termination of your Service(s), Alt-N will provide a complete copy of your mail data on a fee basis no later than ten (10) days following the date of the request, provided that any and all outstanding invoice(s) have been paid in full. To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, Alt-N has no liability to you arising from a data breach or other harm arising from the shipment of the mail data to you. All data associated to your Service(s) will be permanently deleted after 30 days from the effective cancellation date. Data migration services to other platforms are not available for cancelled Service(s).

BILLING POLICY

You will have a thirty (30) day free trial period upon completion of your account setup. Your charges for the Service(s) shall relate to the number of emails setup and provisioned for Service(s) on the anniversary of the Service Date. Alt-N will automatically bill the credit card on file on the anniversary of your Service Date for the next month of Service(s). All fees are billed in US dollars and are subject to change with thirty (30) days prior notice.

It is your responsibility to ensure that all billing information on file with Alt-N is accurate, and that any credit card or other automated payment method on file has sufficient funds for processing. You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your payment method by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, membership, overdraft, or insufficient funds and over the credit limit fees. Any account not paid in full within five (5) days will be suspended. Ten (10) days following suspension of Service(s) for non-payment, Alt-N reserves the right to terminate Service(s) for non-payment. Alt-N is not responsible for any damages or losses as a result of suspension or termination for non-payment of your account. A fifty dollar ($50.00) service fee to remove the account from suspension may apply. In addition, Alt-N reserves the right to refuse to re-activate your Service(s) until any and all outstanding invoice(s) have been paid in full.

If you believe there is an error in Alt-N's billing, you must contact Alt-N about it, in writing, within thirty (30) days of the date you are billed or charged. Alt-N's obligation to consider your claim is contingent on your providing it with sufficient facts for Alt-N to investigate your claims. You waive your right to dispute any charges or fees if you fail to notify Alt-N in writing or meet the deadline set out above. If Alt-N finds that your claim is valid, Alt-N agrees to credit your account on your next billing date.

SUPPORT POLICY

Alt-N will only provide support to your designated administrator(s) or technical contacts on the account. All support requests must be made by your designated administrator(s) or technical contacts on your end users' behalf for security purposes. Alt-N will not provide support directly to your end users and reserves the right to suspend your account if end users repeatedly request support after being advised of this policy.

Alt-N will provide technical support to you by email, live chat or phone during regular business hours as detailed on Alt-N's website. Alt-N will always do its best to provide fast, friendly, and helpful support over the telephone and live chat, but no guarantee is made as to the availability or accessibility. Urgent support for critical issues is provided twenty-four (24) hours a day, three-hundred-sixty-five (365) days a year by calling toll free phone that is provided to you upon completion of your setup. If you request more than two (2) hours of email client account setup/configuration support in the course of one year, time beyond said two hours will be billed hourly at the rate of one hundred fifty US dollars per hour ($150.00US/hr).

Alt-N performs data backups on a "snap shot" basis at a specific moment. Therefore Alt-N may not create a backup of every item that is sent, received or stored. Backups will only capture those items (including mailboxes and public folders) that are present during the time of the backup. Items are not permanently deleted from a mailbox and can be recovered. Data on backups may be retrieved only for a limited number of days. Copies of all email received via SMTP can be recovered by you via the administrative control panel for up to thirty (30) days from the date received.

If you do not comply with these terms, and Alt-N does not take action right away, this does not mean that Alt-N is giving up any rights such as taking action in the future.

If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
